The first investors in Emaar South, the 7 sq km mega-development – a joint venture of Emaar Properties and Dubai South – can look forward to moving in next year.
Emaar South is located in the heart of Dubai South, an emerging 145 sq km master-planned city billed to become the city's new logistics hub.
It offers a mix of tiered townhomes, townhouses, villas and apartments. Work is ongoing with Emaar Development making significant progress on various components including road and infrastructure work.
Development of all the residential components launched are also progressing with Urbana 1 tiered townhouse community – a novelty for Dubai – readying for handover in the third quarter of 2019.
Urbana 2 and Urbana 3 homes are also scheduled to be delivered by end of 2019 in addition to the Golf Views apartments. The Golf Links villa community is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2020, just in time for the Expo 2020 Dubai.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, managing director of Emaar Properties, said: “Emaar South offers the opportunity to be part of the future logistics and aviation hub of the city. The tiered townhouses, golf course villas, and apartments that we launched earlier received significant demand, underlining Emaar South as a preferred lifestyle destination.”
Work on the sprawling green district park and the vast landscaping will start soon as well as that of the championship golf course, he added.
The main spine of the development, billed as a bustling boulevard, will also take shape shortly while the 132kV substation that will serve the community will also be finished next year.
Earlier this year, Emaar unveiled Saffron, the first townhouse community in Emaar South.
The residents will enjoy a wide range of amenities such as community swimming pools, indoor and outdoor play areas, barbecue areas, lawns and a health & fitness facility, as well as a community clubhouse, hotels, nursery, K-12 school, and mosques.
